Brit checked her cell phone again and looked down the crowded hallway, but Maya was nowhere to be seen. Brit looked back at Maya’s locker. She plucked the note out of locker’s vent. The note was…
Short fiction on its way
In an effort not just to write more, (because that’s not often an issue), but to make my writing public instead of hiding it in my journals and computer to rewrite and never show anyone, I’m going to be posting short fiction on a semi-regular basis. It probably won’t be amazing, so feel free to hate or love or reblog or ignore.
Here is a picture of me in front of a huge, ancient drum in Vietnam.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday making California the first state in the nation to add lessons about gays and lesbians to social studies classes in public schools.
Brown, a Democrat, signed the landmark bill requiring public schools to include the contributions of people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender in social studies curriculum.
I’d die happy if I never had to see this headline again. How does this continue to be a journalistic question? What year is it? Seriously? Still?
OMG TIM OMG.
oh dear god, yes.
Drum lessons start this Friday from my uncle who still has his set in the basement from 30 years ago. #GPOYW
Man, talk about having a bad day…
I can’t imagine watching this show with out having read the books and already knowing everything that’s going to happen. No one is safe people, no one!
this week’s embarrassments to date-
1. Got drinks with a cute boy/ Got drunk and talked to cute boy about my ovaries. (Guys love that, right?)
2. Cried in front of my ex-boyfriend because he was being really nice to me. Apparently it makes me cry when people are nice to me. This does not speak well for my life.
3. Have had to explain to friends that I didn’t get a boob job, I’m on pills- to fix formerly discussed ovaries- that doubled the size of my chest. So yes, they are bigger. I know you noticed. Also, none of my shirts or dresses fit anymore.
Feel free to add your own to the list!
